Testimonials from volunteers
I was cleaning the garden from weeds and roots. It was not that difficult work, especially with my new friends. We had a lot of fun. It is good chance to help people with this important work, because it is very significant to grow organic food in time of GMO products. I hope in my country we will have this kind of garden.
-Ekateria, Pre-grad from Russia
With several tools, we turned the soil to dig up the roots of weeds. And it is crazy that we turned all the soil to dig out as much weeds as we can, which was really fulfilling.
-Jiawen, Semester at SDSU from China
I would recommend this activity to other students, because you do the right thing helping the community and work in fresh air. It smells like tomatoes and bell peppers. Thank you for this experience.
-Mara, Semester at SDSU from Germany
I love people in the community garden and atmosphere so I will highly recommend this activity.
-Megumi, Semester at SDSU from Japan
Firstly, we cleared the weed roughly. And then we went deep and tried to clear the roots of the weed. It took us nearly two hours to finish this job. And the sunshine was bright, it was kind of hot and I was sweating. But we did a really amazing job that we cleared all of the weed in that area! ... I gained a fantastic experience today and I am so glad that I took this chance to join this valuable activity. I learned something about the gardening and the true meaning of community work. Thanks for this precious opportunity!
-Qin, Semester at SDSU from China
